It performs consistently well. Heating is even (no "hot spots" that I can find), and it preheats to the desired temperature very quickly. I've used it to cook pizza, chicken of all kinds, fish (it does really well broiling bacon-wrapped scallops), and roasted vegetables. I like the fact that it has two rack positions, and you can "flip" the rack so that you have 4 height options for the rack.
One of its strongest points is the interior size. You can fit quite a large pan inside with no problem. It is a bit on the bulky side -- the footprint is just a little larger than my old toaster oven, but this one is quite a bit taller. Something to think about -- you'll need some space for this. I have it tucked into the corner of my kitchen counter under the cabinets, and it stays nicely out of the way until I'm ready to use it.
It's also easy to clean -- partly due to the size of the interior, and partly due to the easily-removed crumb tray.
Now, for the minor design flaw. The stainless trim on the glass door under the handle wraps around to the inside of the door, which means it is exposed to the heat of the oven. That also means that the part of the trim on the *outside* heats up to the same temperature. The handle itself stays cool, but that trim strip underneath gets hot enough to burn. I'm sporting a new burn on my left hand as I type this from this evening's adventure with roasted potatoes.Read more ›
It toasts evenly, and there are 7 levels of done-ness to choose from. But it doesn't toast dark brown without putting the bread in twice.
If you hit the 4-6 slice button you can get darker toast on the first try. ~
The TOB 155 cooks pretty evenly for a toaster oven. Mine seems to run hot, baked goods finish a few minutes sooner than in my regular oven. I've baked biscuits, banana bread, chicken, frozen fries, frozen fried chicken, baked potatoes and corn bread in it. They all came out very nicely.
I broiled chicken, and it came out very nicely. The broiling pan that comes with it is very sturdy. And the door props open part way.
* Crumb catcher... I like it. No more dodging the heating element when cleaning up cooked on spills.
* It has handles on the outside at the base which are handy for turning the unit around when you want to empty the crumb tray.
* Two positions for the rack. And the rack itself is designed to sit higher or lower on each position if you flip it one way or the other.
* The manual. It has tips for optimal toasting, rack positioning etc.
* Construction. This unit seems pretty sturdy.
* The cord. At 30" long, it scarcely reaches to the other side of the unit. I bought a heavier household extension cord which works fine. At first I used an ordinary cord, but when I used the oven just for toast it became almost too hot to touch.
* The price. Surely someone can make as good an oven for less!
* Footprint. My breadmaker takes up less counter space. Currently the oven sits on top of my microwave.
* The timer ... its piercing. On the other hand, its hard to miss.Read more ›
I set out to roast potatoes in my cast iron skillet (which fits in the Cuisinart toaster oven), so I set the oven to 375 degrees and started chopping shallots and garlic. The oven was hot before I could peel the first shallot. In my wall oven, preheating would have taken 20 minutes and the potatoes would take 45 minutes to bake. The potatoes took 20 minutes in this oven. Then I baked fish and it was done in a few minutes, too. Everything was browned and baked evenly.
I toasted a test slice of bread - prefect.
I had been leaning toward a Krups, but so glad I didn't. There was no prep before using like I read about with the Krups. Much less expensive and not nearly as many problems as Krups owners listed, either.
The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is what so many reviewers said. The metal trim around the door gets HOT enough to burn. I'm keeping an oven mitt and tongs next to the oven.
I just bought the cookbook "Cooking for Two"Cooking for Two: 2009,The Year's Best Recipes Cut Down to Size I think the combination of the smaller oven and recipes from this cookbook will work well for our paired down household.

This toaster oven was a wedding gift and it looked nice and fancy when we first received it, but soon found out the meaning of poor design through every day use.
